ABOUT Formed in late 2006, The Remains Of My Estate (Trome Records) is an independent label based in the UK, releasing limited editions of quiet minimal drone, introspective sad songs, and some that exists in between.
Many pressings are debut releases or new format releases for established artists. Trome opened with the debut album by American minimalist composer Duane Pitre, and both albums by the now legendary and sadly disbanded Scottish lo-fi band Small Town Boredom. After a lengthy hiatus the label has resumed activity in 2014 with a debut vinyl release by Rivulets, followed by albums by Lowered and the debut album by itdreamedtome.
LABEL ETHOS Trome operates as a non-profit venture with the aim to release high quality, beautiful documents of intangible artworks. It functions primarily as an artistic endeavour in close collaboration with its artists, and is therefore not bound by any specific business pattern or release schedule. The same attention to detail given to realising each record goes into selecting which works to release. In other words, the label's focus is on art rather than culture.
ARTWORK/PACKAGING Great care is taken with release artwork, which has featured acclaimed visual artists and photographers. Packaging is also high quality, without compromising our environmental and economic values. Trome strives to make beautiful objects as well as maintain fair prices on all its products.
DEMO POLICY/RELEASE CRITERIA Label releases cross different genres of minimal music; from modern composition, organic drones and lo-fi songs. Each recording is distinct, yet contributes in a certain way to the specific sensibilities of the label. To this end we are open to accepting and releasing new forms, but favour slow, introverted, quiet and sublime music and sound art. Above all, artwork that is authentic in its integrity.
Please note that Trome is not accepting demos at present. However if you would like to share your work with the label please feel free to contact us.
